Abstract

The current study provides a systematic review of 107 studies. Studies were drawn from academic journals, reports, and edited books from January 2001 to December 2014. The main question addressed by the review asks, ‘What does recent literature tell us about minority status and juvenile justice processing?’ The purpose of this article is to review recent studies that examine the roles that race and ethnicity play in the juvenile justice decision-making process. The results illustrate the overall complexity of the issues surrounding DMC. A matrix was developed to extract key features from each of the studies, which are presented in Part II. The study site, racial groups, decision points investigated, staged extracted, race effects, and results are included in the matrix.
